Klay Thompson and Michael K. Williams starred in an awesome commercial of them playing chess
As you can see in the video above, this is a classic clip. Williams and Thompson indeed are playing chess, but it’s more than that. The two open up, with Thompson even discussing how he bounces back whenever he’s down in life. Failures don’t bring Thompson down, they push him to get better.
The news of Williams’ death really has rocked the acting community. According to the New York Post, Williams passed away on what’s believed to be a heroin overdose. Per the Post’s sources, Williams was found face down in his Williamsburg (Brooklyn) apartment. The Post is also reporting that heroin was found in the kitchen on a table.
Police arrived to the scene at around 2 p.m. and Williams was announced dead shortly after that. The Cops were called after a family member found Williams laying on the ground unresponsive and ‘cold.’ It goes without saying, but this is an incredibly sad story. Only more old memories – like the video with Thompson – are sure to make their way to social media the rest of the week in Williams’ honor.
